-- they thought newt was such a great debater, they wanted to see someone like newt talk to president obama about his policies and about the last four years. and they thought newt would have been the guy to do it. and i don't think that the republicans now feel like they lost a step by having romney there. and in watching, i've tried to sometimes espouse free market principles, private sector language about how to approach certain things. and i got to tell you, there were a couple times last night where my eyes just got wider as i listened and, i don't know, sometimes your stances can make you -- if you're right about policy, it just -- maybe it's easier to win a debate. >> well, joe, a couple points. first of all, i think you're dead on about the gingrich point because i think mitt romney was newt gingrich's superior in the debate for the reason that i mentioned before. if you go after an incumbent president, you have to do it in the right way and new gingrich and proven over and over that he overtorts his rhetoric and goes too far and ultimately makes himself look bad. the other thing that romn

. >> no. i like gum. who doesn't. and biscuits. what's not to like? back to politics now. president obama's lead has narrowed heading into tonight's big debate. john harwood is in denver getting ready for the big event. john? >> reporter: melissa, we've got several pieces of encouraging news for mitt romney from not only the wall street poll but swing states poll. you mentioned that mitt romney's closed the deficit among likely voters for obama from five points to three points. and in florida, he's closed from five down to one which is tied given the margin of error in our poll. in virginia, he has closed the gap from five to two. if you look at the state of ohio, a must-win state for mitt romney, mathematically possible for him to get to it without it but his strategists think he needs it. he needs to make progress there. but the fact that some of the national polls are coming back a little bit, some of the swing state polls are tightening, is a bit of an earn couragement for romney that he still has an opportunity for deficit with three or four points to change the dynamic in some way.

the idea that the labor department is cooking these numbers to help president obama. people said that during the bush administration too. they accused the bush administration of doing that. it is just not true. doesn't happen that way. and i think people need to have a real debate over the argument and not a cartoon debate about somehow darkened conspiracies with the number. >> so the discussion will happen on the sunday shows whether or not the week was about the president's performance in the debate, or this economic data. which wins? which one is more important? >> you know, the debate was seen by tens of millions of people. i think that's important. i've said all along during the campaign, the jobless numbers have been hyped in their importance because people are living in this economy. they feel what's happening to their lives and their own prospects. this is good news for the president but doesn't change what voters already know about their own lives and the prospects for their kids to get ahead, the prospects for them to get jobs if they don't have jobs now. i wouldn't ove
